do. we're monday morning quarterbacking here. when susan rice went on television, it was five days after the incident. here we are months after the incident. we have much more information, we know much more about what happened and what didn't happen. and as doug said, these situations are rolling -- rolling catastrophes where the information you get on monday could change from the information you get on tuesday. and i think what's happening here is that, you know, as we said in the editorial as doug mentioned, while senators graham, ayotte and mccain are focused on what susan rice, ambassador rice said on the sunday talk shows, they are not asking any questions at all about the real questions about security there at the consulate in benghazi. that's where their interest and focus and ire should be pointed. not at a u.n. ambassador who went on the sunday talk shows as a spokesperson for the administration giving, imparting the information she was given by the intelligence community. >> and susan, for those just joining us. this happened moments ago in the last hour. i want to remind

susan rice, she is meeting with senators mccain, graham, and ayott. do you think she has explaining to do with what she said about benghazi? and would you support her if she is nominated for secretary of state? >> she's not yet been nominated. so i'm going to look carefully at her credentials, which i think qualify her very well to be nominated. i think she's done a very good job at the united nations. i do think she's explained that what she said about benghazi was the intelligence that she was given. and she'll have an opportunity as she meets with senators to further explain that position. >> do you think they're open to giving her a fair hearing? because some pretty tough things have been said about her. >> well, it's unfortunate that much of that discussion has gotten so personal. she does need to get a fair hearing. i'm hopeful senator mccain is a patriot, i think he'll give her a fair hearing. i'm certain my colleague from new hampshire, and of lindsey graham. so i do believe that it's in the country's interest to give her a fair hearing and to let her explain the situation,

from this chilly reception to hot topics in the white house, mexico new president arriving this hour. >> president obama is getting ready to pack his bags. that's right. the campaigner in chief is heading back out onto the trail. he does know he won, right? >> i'm steve kornacki. for me of us it's home for the holidays. you get a rare chance to see old friends and distant relatives. the bad news is you get a chance to see old friends and distant relatives. >> i'm making a pledge to my friend grover norquist. you're in "the cycle," and you have my word it's going to be good. >>> the case against ambassador susan rice as a successor to hillary clinton deepens. she went to the hill today to smooth it over with senators mccain, ayotte and graham who criticized her original comments on the deadly benghazi attacks. i picture the conversation between the president and rice going like this. we want you as secretary of state, so go make nice. answer their questions so they stop attacking you and threatening to block your possible nomination. yeah, so how did that work out? >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. it is clear that the information that she gave the american public was incorrect. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before with a little bit of inquiry and curiosity, i think it would be pretty clear that to explain this episode as related to a video that created a mob that turned into a riot was far afield. if you can do nothing but give bad information, isn't it better to give no information at all? >> i'm more troubled today. just to be clear, when you have a position where you're ambassador to the united nations, you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparation and responsibilities for that job. that's troubling to me as well. why she wouldn't have asked. >> amanda is a senior political reporter at the huffington post. amanda, susan rice also issued a statement after that meeting and in part she says, we explained that the talking points provided by the intelligence community and the initial assessment upon which they were based were incorrect. in a key respect there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. i have to say, i'm confused. we know from the cia testimony and those hearings that the intelligence was good and changed somewhere along the way. arecloser to figuring out where that communication breakdown occurred? >> reporter: there's always a fog of war, as it is. a lot of this information we have to remember is classified. so she can't talk about it, and if they were talking about it, i'd be a little more disturbed because they'd be revealing classified information. is it still hard to figure out exactly what happened? yes. it does not seem like susan rice was out there deliberating lying as some senators said. she was begin these talking points about the intelligence community and was sent out by the white house and that's what she did. she delivered the information as to sort of the best of what she understood at the time. >> well, it was not classified that this was a terrorist att k attack. that was in press reports days afterwards and before she went on national television. i got to ask, is the president wasting good capital pushing this nomination of a clearly controversy figure, regardless of which side you fall on susan rice, instead of pushing for immigration and fiscal cliff and saving up his capital there? >> reporter: well, it's clear the president is fond of susan rice. you saw that in the press conference after the election. he really forcefully defended her. you saw more passionate people had been waiting for from the president. if there's a time to push someone, the president believes is the best personed to the job, it's after you win the election in a pretty strong way. so the president, i think, if he wants to push her, now is the team to do it. it's interesting that so many senators such as john mccain and lindsey graham oppose her. policy-wise she's closer to them in terms of policy and intervention and human rights than, say, senator john kerry, for example. >> amanamanda, you referenced t press conference where the president went to bat for susan rice. let's actually take a listen to them. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who this nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. when they gt after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> so, first of all, bes is suhsh is great word. prior to that press conference i was am bif lent to secretary of state. i like john kerry and sue glan rice. after i saul the president go to bat for her and point out how outrageous these attacks on her having, i am more inclined to want to see susan rice in that position, which also leads me to the conclusion. john mccain, if his ultimate goem w goal was to keep susan rice from secretary of state it seems he's made a tactical error. he backed the president into a corner and made it to appear weak and trying to placate mccain and graham and ayotte instead of going with the person that he really wants to see in the position. >> reporter: i mean, you've seen lawmakers and some republican lawmakers go after quite a few of the president's either nominees, people who are actually in office. you have seen this with attorney general eric holder. epa had lisa jackson van jones who was at the white house and president obama won an election. he liked susan rice. he's close to her. it's clear he thinks she would be the best for the job or one of the best for the job, and he's going to fight for her. i think you're right. backing him into a corner may prompt him to fight harder. >> amanda, the story has not advanced since day one. john mccain and kelly ayotte and lindsey graham saying why did she say the things she said? the only advance we had is the intelligence community said she said exactly what we told her to say. we knew it was an attack, and we told her not to say because we didn't want al qaeda to know we knew it at that point. the real question is why is mccain making this attack and wasting whatever political capital and reputation he has left? >> reporter: well, some people are wondering does mccain want to simply stay in the spotlight? mccain is known for foreign policy. he's known for going on sunday shows. the benghazi issue gets him back in the spotlight. everyone is talking about john mccain again. so some people wonder if there's a little bit of political opportunism there. >> i want to go back to something krystal said a minute ago. closing ranks behind susan rice because much political battle lines in this. you made the point earlier if you just looked at this without regard to benghazi and said john mccain realistically speaking, who potentially could appoint secretary of state that would agree ideological with you. realistically susan rice is as good as he can do. the consensus in the democratic party is probably to the right of it. i wonder is there any push-back from the left or from democrats in washington toward the administration just saying, hey, look, don't fall for this trap of nominating susan rice because you have to? get somebody that agrees more? >> susan rice is very well respected, and i know a lot of progressives wanted her to be a spokesperson because they thought she was effective. susan rice is known as the conscience of the administration when it comes to human rights. se favors a muscular intervention diplomacy and is probably more willing to intervene on human rights issues than john kerry would be. john kerry, if he were nominated for secretary of state, would probably have an easier time through the senate, especially now, but also because the senators there are his colleagues. >> amanda, thanks very much. see you soon. >> thank you. >> this hour the president meets with mexico's president-elect, and they're taking immigration. could we be on the verge of major reform?

at the white house this hour with mexi mexico's president-elect. there's plenty to discuss, but at top of the list according to the white house immigration reform. president obama won more than two-thirds of the latino vote. the administration believes that should be a wake-up call for republicans to get on board with a bill about the border. a new abc news poll shows a majority of americans support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already on u.s. soil. is this issue finally fertile ground in washington? let's spin about it. i don't think we can eliminate or separate the immigration discussion from the drug war, which stretches across the united states and mexico. part of the immigration discussion and the drug war wrapped up in this fear of, you know, drugs, violence, poor folks participating and escaping from the drug war coming here. america is slowly moving against the war on drugs. it's kinld of amazing to see this movement. we see colorado and washington creating a very liberal open policy, california striking down their three-strikes law. that says let's not have nonviolent drug offenders go away to jail for a long time. judges and police say this is a losing battle. let's move towards treatment and decriminalization and treat it like alcohol rather than prohibition and criminalization. we have a mexican president saying, hey, let's look at a different way to treat this thing. let's talk about what he recently said. in favor of opening a new debate in the strategy in the way we fight drug traffickings. it's clear after several decades we have more drug consumption, drug use, drug trafficking. things are not working. a change in the drug policy would have a massive impact on the economy and on crime in both north america and throughout south america, and would lead the way and open the path toward a more humane immigration policy and people in america accepting them. >> i think you're right. it's been interesting. as things have moved politically in terms of the war on drugs, we've also, of course, seen after this election potential movement on comprehensive immigration reform. republicans recognizing that they cannot continue down this path of losing latino voters by such a large margin. the president addressed at his recent press conference the possibility of immigration reform. let's take a listen. >> i think there's a pathway for legal status for those who are living in this country, are not engaged in a criminal activity, are here simply to work. it's important for them to pay back taxes and important to learn english and it's important for them to potentially pay a fine. but to give them the avenue whereby they can resolve their legal status here in this country is very important. >> now, one thing that stuck out to me there is rather than saying path to citizenship he said path to legal status, which is two different things. with citizen ship you can vote and with legal status you can't. for a lot of republicans a sticking point has been that distinction. it was their problem with the dream act, because when you lose latino voters by that large margin, you don't want more latino voters. ann coulter said something at a conference a while back that stuck with me. she said after obama care our biggest issue is immigration because if we allow amnesty the whole country will go the way of california and we will never win a national election again. i think that distinction could be an important one in this battle and sticking point. the other thing is republicans have used the immigration issue in primaries and with their base for so long, i do think that this issue a comprehensive immigration reform bill could create a amajor scism within the republican party and could be a new litmus test for republicans. >> it might. one solution to that might be to introduce more sort of piecemeal approaches as opposed to a huge comprehensive bill. one of those bills is the s.t.e.m. jobs act. it was introduced in december and was defeated. it will be brought up again in the lame duck i'm hearing. the gop has tinkered with it. allows highly skilled foreign students to study here in those areas, and then they don't have to go back home or to foreign countries to put those skills to uchlts we want them to stay here and make the visa process easier and make it easier for them to then bring their families here. so it's a good piece of legislation. i think if looks at immigration in a way that counts education and employment. those are two huge factors when addressing the immigration issue. it identifies a gap in the marketplace, that gap being skilled workers in science and tech, and creates a st. louolut based on education and immigration reforms. i think if republicans can survey the landscape and find those areas where they can come up with immigration overtures that may collectively look like a bigger immigration reform package, i think they can be saled they did the right thing without giving everything they want away. >> that might work they'oreticay piecemeal. the important thing is the idea it could create it in the republican party. it really did in 2006 when a few republicans namely george w. bush, karl rove and john mccain and the senate realized the democratic future and had to do go about it. they got 44% of the hispanic vote in 2004. they said let's increase this and cement it and we can have the permanent republican majority. what happened was the republican base, the conservative information establishment wasn't there at all. they didn't look at the long-term demographic picture and say there's an emergency here. they looked at 2004 and said, we won. why give away anything here? there was this total sort of revolt within the republican network, and it resulted in -- it nearly killed john mccain's presidential campaign in 2008. where are we today? we're in a different place. the parties lost an election in part because of the hispanic issues. there are voices now i'm hearing -- i don't say uniform consensus on the right about this. i've heard voices i've never heard speak up before. sean hannity has spoke up. it creates an opportunity for -- this issue is sitting there for a decade now, this idea that pathway to citizenship is stalled. it creates an opportunity for the reform for real comprehensive immigration reform activists and advocates to say here it is. this is the big bill. comprehensive immigration reform. forget the piecemeal stuff. republicans are on board or not. >> yes or no. >> i bet half the republicans say no. if they get half to say yes and guys like sean hannity giving them cover. >> sean hani intellectually is so small. the evolution is not enough to stop the sort of demographic train of latinos and hispanics becoming part of the democratic party for a long time. you should live in fear of that. we know if the latinos and hispanics go the way black people go the 50 years, it's over for the republican p party. >> when you look at 2004, republicans said we won 44% of this population. we're clearly winning on policy. we don't need to address this anymore, and we don't need to address the immigration issue. that was a huge mistake. you're absolutely right. they should have taken that and built momentum and made more overtures instead of ignoring this population. >> they didn't ignore them. they didn't ignore them. they demonized them. they went the opposite way. >> i don't think so. >> another danger is if there's a split as is likely in the republican party, in primaries you'll see some very ugly rhetoric around this. >> sure. >> people will highlight a problem in the republican party in terms of rhetoric around latinos and around immigration. >> it will be the big question the opinion-shaping voices on the right in the republican party. hannity is one of them, but there are many others. do they fan the flames like they did in 2006? >> we also need leaders that shut down that kind of decisive rhetoric and say, your language is not representing us, and it's not working anymore. >> absolutely. when the rushes and coulters lead it, you have problems. you talk about piecemeal. this president wants comprehensive reform, not little pieces. >> i'm glad he's doing it now. we do need big controversial -- >> s.e. cupp answers it. >> i answered the call. >> next, road trip. the campaigning's done, so what is the president hitting the highway for now? not immigration. >>> we're 21 days into the fiscal fiasco hostage situation on capitol hill with lots of words but little action since the election. that's getting ready to change. today the president aannounced he's hitting the road on friday for everyone making less than 250,000 a year. but we know how these things work. we know everyone is going to stall for the next few weeks pandering to constituencies because washington likes to walt until the buzzer to get their shot off. which is this week "the cycle" is unveiling our four-corners offense giving us plenty of flexibility in how we attack the story. we look at the fiscal cliff or as steve calls it the fiscal slope or the fiscal fiesta and of course the fiscal follies. we'll install our own special graphic later this week. it's our new style of play and our next guest might want to be a pair here as he writes about it every day until the situation is resolved. sounds riveting. in the guest spot today is dan gross, the columnist and global business editor for "newsweek" daily beast who says in his latest piece republicans still haven't recognized the new reality. dan, you may be right. i don't know. i guess we'll see. if republicans do agree to raise taxes, do you think that democrats will agree to any health care entitlement reform? which is the harder sell? >> no, i don't think so. that's why i'm so pessimistic or actually so optimistic about going over this fiscal cliff. usually when i threaten to write about something every day until it is resolved, it gets resolved quickly. we'll see in this case. >> that's power. >> the election kind of ratified the stance. which is the bush tax cuts should expire for those making over a certain amount. the steps republicans are taking while useful in negotiating. we see the need for more revenues. okay, we understand we need to negotiate and sort of stamp our feet, they're still talking -- they're having two different conversations. they're saying it's okay to have more revenues if it comes from getting rid of certain tax loopholes, but we won't say which ones those are. by the way, you have to put the two greatest democratic achievements of the past century, social security and medicare, on the chopping block in exchange for that. that shouldn't be in exchange for that, because if we simply do nothing, the republicans lose everything they want. >> such a great point. dan, speaking of republicans not recognizing the new reality, grover norquist has been furiously trying to spin the fact that there are several senators and members of congress who are moving away from his sacred pledge. let's take a listen to a little bit of grover. >> the pledge is not for life, but everybody who signed the pledge, including peter king who tried to weasel out of it, shame on him as the new york sun said today, i hope his wife understands that commitments last a little longer than two years or something. no pledge taker has voted for a tax increase. they've had some people discussing impure thoughts on national television. the same thing with other people who are elected because they made that written commitment to the people of their state. >> that sounds like a threat. >> why does he keep making this romantic sexual thing? >> don't make it sexual! >> impure thoughts? romance and marriage? >> he's really sad. he's a little heartbroken here. he's had a lot of his life in this sacred oath, and they're discarding it like it was nothing. dan, two grover's point, you know, are those republicans having just impure thoughts as he put it, or are they willing to move away from the pledge and actually when it comes down to it not just increase revenues through closing loopholes but increase the rates? >> this is the reason why we shouldn't be so quick to dmis grover norquist, because he's right it's been 20 years since george h.w. bush signed on a tax increase and he got a big primary challenge from bat buchanan and ended up losing. no republican since then said i'm for higher taxes. i will sign off on them. again, this is part of the reason i think we're likely to go over the fiscal cliff. it may seem juvenile to say i swore to an oath. we can't do this. i will never stroet to increase taxes. once all the taxes go up, everybody is in a position to vote for a tax cut. so the nature of this may be such that republicans feel compelled to wait until after taxes have risen so that they can actually vote for a tax cut, which will be some sort of compromise. i don't think we should dismiss grover norquist and the power of this pledge and the threat to run primary campaigns against people so quickly. >> what you're talking about there, though, it sounds like getting out of the pledge on a technicality. if they wait for the rates to expire on their oath, then they don't have to vote for a rate increase. that really honoring the spirit of this commitment? >> i don't think it is. if that's what it takes to get people to reality, we've been waiting for many years for republican legislators to kind of recognize reality, and people thought, okay, the 2008 election. that will really sort of wake them up and think we have to compromise on issues of taxation. no it didn't. people thought maybe 2012 will do the trick. we see them edge from this. i think their minds really won't be crystallized and focused on this until the top marginal rate is at 39% again. until dividends and capital gains are taxed at 35% and 36% again. until that happens, it will be hard to get people to focus. >> dan, i want to ask you a serious question. i have to say something about grover norquist first. i tell you what, i like grover norquist. you don't have to agree with him, but i'm amused by him. my favorite grover norquist story when i covered congress in 2005 and 2006, somehow i did a story about politicians who were active as student politics at colleges. i think he had been or he had some thoughts on him. i called him up for a quote, and he didn't let me done. i didn't get the question out of my mouth about student body presidents. anybody who is a student body president ought to be drowned. >> wow, strong feelings. >> did he sign an oath to that in that regard? >> the thing go grover, he's an entertaining guy and he does wield a lot of power. not as much as people said, but chuck todd said he's a symbol of absolutism. dan, what i wanted to ask you about is something else coming into the picture here in these negotiations is the debt ceiling. if that's going to be -- we're going to sort of come up against that a couple months into the new year, not at the same time as this fiscal slope. obama said to boehner he wants the debt ceiling to be part of the deal. boehner said everything comes with a price, mr. president. are republicans going to use this to exert leverage right now? >> absolutely. again, another factor that works against a big grand bargain. the more stuff you try to pack in there, you want to talk about social security, medicare. the republicans want to talk about obama care and some of the taxes in there. obama is saying he wants to talk about the debt ceiling. these are all separate issues, and the more stuff you try to jam in there, i think it actually makes it harder to come to an agreement rather than easier. >> dan, part of the whole thing here and calling it a fiscal cliff is to add to the theatricality and the chael leng of the whole thing. it's a slope. everybody calm down. we don't need this brinksmanship which adds to the republicans' leverage in this situation. you, sir, are writing a column a day about this. i know you're satiracal in your column. are you feeding the beast of the whole cliff thing, or are you completely trying to take it apart? >> i'm feeding "the daily beast." >> well-played, sir. >> people forget that "nightline" started because of covering the iranian hostage situation. maybe i can get a nighttime show on this. this is kind of serious not just in the sense of the economic impact, but this is a real significant, potential change in policy. we did a lot of things over the last ten years with our taxes and spending. we cut taxes on capital gains and dividends and put medicare precipitation drugs in without a financing mechanism. we did all sorts of stuff that distorted or budget processes, the way we spend money and collect money. this is a really big opportunity to either change it proactively with a large deal or to see some really big changes come in without doing anything. either way they have a pretty serious consequence, so i really think it is deserving of the saturation. >> dan, i'm just going to -- i'll say this. you ought to hear this, too. this is probably the 15 theth straight show we've talked about the fiscal cliff, so we're guilty of it, too. >> dan gross, thank you. >> anytime. >> up next, love him, hate him, can't live without them. decoding your friendships. we have the new book on the most complicated

season. it can be a wonderful, joyous time and also quite stressful and quite straining on friendships in particular. this is like a challenging time for a friendship to navigate? >> i think it's challenging for friendships, it's challenging for people. i think the holidays are a rough time for everybody except my 9-year-old daughter. you know, it's sort of something that you need to be sensitive with your friends about where they are in their lives. people at the holidays tend to think about i'm not with a person i want to be or somebody they've lost. so i think it's something where it's a good time to tread lightly and think and care for your friends. >> julie, i'm a mom like you. i have a 4 1/2-year-old daughter. i've found that since having a child, it's become harder for me to have friends who don't also have kids. >> what are you trying to say? >> not including my friends at the table. >> the thing about that, one of the things about being a parent is you're so tired all the time, and it's nice to have people in your life who understand why you can't canceling. you're exhausted. >> yes. >> but it's also very nice to have friends who don't have children who aren't talking about what preschool their kid got into or, you know, whether their kid can read "war and peace" at age 3. it's sort of refreshing to talk to people who know what's happening in the world. all of you do. >> what school is your kid? we'll talk about it after the show. there's many reasons -- >> she's in harvard for fourth grade. >> oh, oh. okay. >> the harvard of the upper west side. >> let's wrap this up. there's many reasons why we move on from our friends, and you know, marriage, region, get a new career, they get a different career. there's lots of ryaeasons to brk apart. i like the essence of you, but we don't know each other the way we used to. there's a divide between us. how do we navigate those situations where we still want that connection, because it was there in the past, but it's not really all the way there anymore? >> well, it's an effort. it's something you have to make an effort. i think one of the things that happens as you get older is that sfli friendships are like the wallpaper of your life. they're lovely and out there, but we're not doing that much to take care of them. i think you need to be -- you need to put in the effort instead of assuming that every time you have plans with this person you'll be able to cancel. don't. you know, you can also keep in touch with so many nice ways that aren't the phone or being in person. you can tweet at them or facebook with them or e-mail them or text them or something so you're sort of keeping in touch and on top of things without necessarily having to leave your house. >> julie, do you have any -- your tips here for maintaining friendships. there are a few in your book that are helpful to keep in mind? >> i think that a big tip for me is taking care of yourself in a friendship. it's sort of like the air mask that drops down. you put it on your face before the kid's face. you need to take care of yourself when you find yourself in a friendship that may be innervating. make sure that you set limits. i think you need to count your sprendships as important as everything else. we have family commitments, job commitments, things you absolutely have to do, and friendship isn't disposable but it can feel that way. i think putting in the time is crucial. >> you know, julie, most people i think would want to maintain their friendships and find new ways to do that, and maybe even expand their circle of friends. i very much like to make mine smaller. how do i go about -- >> wait for my net book "friend losing." >> yes. are there ways -- it seems impossible with facebook and easy ways to connect with people, is there a way to unconnect, disconnect? say, please leave me alone, i have enough friends thank you. >> i think sadly it's easy to disconnect. >> did i just do it? >> i think you keep your -- i think when you find you have much less friends on facebook after this segment. >> wonderful. >> yeah, i think that, you know, it's so easy you don't return a couple of phone calls, and people disappear unless they are really -- >> stalkers? >> stalkers. >> they like you. >> you can keep stalkers around for a while, i believe. >> now i know why s.e. stopped returning my calls. >> all right. >> thanks so much. >> thank you. >> speaking of friends, there's a new facebook hoax. did you fall for it? as we head to break, a fun new song from a hot canadian

be specific. >> there's a couple ways to read that statement like anthony weiner would say. google auto complete. start asking a question about something. you find out what people -- you and about john boehner, you don't ask about the fiscal cliff or the tax plan. they ask if john boehner is gay. is joe biden, stupid, retards, gay, jewish, smart? these are the smart. these are the things that pop up. >> gay is like always. >> gay is up there. mormon is up there a lot. bill belichick, the patriots coach, is bill bielichick gay, mormon, a cheater. >> sideline cheater. >> it's interesting that this profile, i think people don't maybe appreciate that everything you're searching -- there are people who are putting this all together and saying that's who this guy is. >> that reminds me of a funny story from thanks lelast year. a guy on twitter told his dad twitter was a search engine. so his dad started entering questions into twitter and they went up as posts. some examples, how do you pronounce juan? national geographic dinosaur truth. can i bring a tupperware of chili on an airplane. i don't know if this was real or fake but it was really, really funny. people don't realize, the internet is not a gated community. what you say is going to be up there. that said i'm a little disappointed in facebook. i thought the whole point was to democratize the internet and bring people together and protect your own little community and instead now it seems like they're almost something of a dictatorship saying you're not going to get to vote in these decisions and we're going to steal your information and share it with whomever they want. it might make me want to not be on facebook. >> bottom line is the bottom line for them. >> but i find the whole discussion that they're saying you're saying very disappointing, but everybody has to remember, the internet never forgets. whatever you put on facebook, you can not be hired because of what you get on facebook. or you could not get a boyfriend or girlfriend because of what they will find about you on facebook. it's never lost and the people who are living on facebook and putting these pictures on themselves at a party or what have you, won't want that picture out there in ten years. the internet never forgets. you will be regretting the amount you gave to facebook -- >> why are you looking at me? >> i'm not, krystal. what, what? >> to that point, you know, i think facebook is trying to make money, and what we have seen is basically as consumers we have sent a message we are not willing to pay for stuff on the internet. so we are paying with our personal data instead. and one thing i think that could be helpful that i was reminded of is the consumer financial protection bureau has put together these simplified forms for credit cards and mortgages so that consumers have an easier time understanding what they're getting into and i think this problem of what are we exactly getting ourselves into when we sign up for facebook and other social networking services would be helpful. some sort of form that is easily understood, transparent, at least then consumers have some opportunity to educate themselves. >> there's the next great market opening. it's for some sort of product that will protect you from all these sinister data gathering things that facebook and google has. >> who would vote for in the future i can't vote for anything. who would vote for you th-- tha?

again, thanks for watching us tonight. i'm bill o'reilly. please always remember that the spin stops right here, because we are definitely looking out for you. >> tonight -- >> we can all imagine a scenario where we go off the fiscal cliff. we can go back into a recession. >> the fiscal cliff reports, but are democrats trying to scare you with massive tax hikes? also chaos in malls across america on black friday. we examine what's behind the holiday hysteria. >> a clear sexism and racism. >> more baseless allegations from the left that racism is fueling criticism of ambassador susan rice. we sounded that alarm about the rise of the muslim brotherhood in egypt. now our predictions are becoming a dangerous reality. all of that, plus video of jamie foxx's bizarre tribute to his lord and savior. barack obama? "hannity" starts right here, right now. >> it's clear the democrats spell blood in the water. if a deal is not reached by january 1st, a series of defense budget cuts will mean massive tax hikes reaching every american. we've seen democrats from the president on down using the so-called crisis to ram their left wing agenda down your throat. they want bigger taxes, bigger government. for example, take a look. >> if despite the dangers of going over the fiscal cliff and what that means for our economy, that there's too much stubbornness in congress, that we can't even agree on giving middle-class families a tax cut, then middle-class families are all going to end up having a big tax hike. that's going to be a pretty rude shock for them, and i suspect will have a big impact on the holiday shopping season, which in turn will have an impact on business planning and hiring, and we can go back into a recession. >> sean: republicans hate big beared and santa claus. don't buy this hype, such as letting the bush cuts expire, are not the answer to tackling this deficit. in fact, during the 2012 fiscal year the federal government cost $9.7 billion to run each and every day, but the additional revenue from letting the bush tax cuts expire only amounts to around $82 billion a year, meaning the government would be funded for a whopping 8.5 days if in fact the president wins this fight. sadly the real reason we've reached this point is because our elected representatives simply have no idea how to stop spending your money. as a result, the door has been kicked wide open for democrats to use this as an opportunity to scare you into thinking more government, well, that's got to be the answer. we've heard all of this before. now during both the obamacare and the stimulus debates, fear mongering was this president's go-to strategy into getting his way. this is what he predicted would happen unless his so-called recovery plan was passed. >> the situation we face could not be more serious. we've inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the great depression. economists across the spectrum have warned if they don't act immediately million more jobs will disappear, the national unemployment rate will approach double digits, more people will lose their homes and their healthcare, and our nation will sink into a crisis that at some point is going to be that much tougher to reverse. >> sean: a lot of good that did. what's stopping obama from imposing his will on you yet again? that's where republicans come in. unfortunately over the weekend a handful of gop lawmakers indicated that they'd be open to putting revenue on the table, but as you know revenue, that happens to be the democratic code word for tax increases. that is simply not an acceptable position for any true conservative. republicans were not elected to rubber stamp obama's agenda. they were elected to stand up for specific principles, that being limited government, lower taxes. these are not catch phrases designed to help phony republicans win an election. these are core values that voters send politicians to washington, they want these things protected. no republican that's walking the halls of the house or senate was sent there to cave. theyere elected to advocate for fiscal austerity, balancing the budget, making the case why our debt and deficit are simply immoral and unsustainable. and that's why we admire, for example, people like our founders around our framers. that's why we hold them in such high regard. we conservatives, we love our country with passionate commitment, and like reagan and thatcher before us, we love our country too much to allow her to follow the path toward decline, social disintegration, and of course bankruptcy, which would lead to irrelevance. even when the public makes bad choices, as they did, for example, in the 1970s, when they elected jimmy carter, or as the british did in the 1930s when neville chamberlain served as prime minister. we'll continue to make our case with all the strength, passion, intelligence we can muster as conservatives. great leaders, they're always asked to do a difficult job, and they don't compromise, they don't waivedon't waver. it's time to cut government spending and do that first. here with more on all of this, neal bortz is back with us. welcome to "hannity." >> hey you. how you doing? >> sean: hey you. how many days till your retirement? >> 22 more shows. 22. >> sean: all right. you are a libertarian. i'm a registered conservative. i'm watching this debate unfold. i don't hear anybody advocating for limited government. nobody! where are those people in washington? >> i don't know, sean, e. where are they? i wish we could find some. we certainly didn't have that theme during the campaign. i just heard that clip of obama you played talking about damage to our economy from the so-called fiscal cliff. we really can't hurt the economy any more right now than we did on november 6th. look, this fiscal cliff they're talking about simply isn't high enough for a fatal plunge. when we get to the cliff that we could die on, then they'll start talking about less government and cutting spending. >> sean: how much further can you go? i mean $16 trillion, headed to $20 trillion, headed to $25 trillion. look, black friday, this was on drudge, just put up late tonight, literally 200 -- however much it is -- per person in this country, $susa $200 ande dollars, every child born today in debt. seems to me there's a moral case to be made that stealing from your kids and grandkids is one that would resonate. living within your means is one that would resonate. i don't hear anybody discussing it. republicans talk about caving. >> sean, we live in culture where you're greedy to keep the money you earn but not greedy to take away the money that somebody else earns. everything is turned upside down. they're talking about tax increases to save our economy. that's like telling a heart patient to eat more fatty foods. it just doesn't work. sean, you cited an interesting statistic a while ago about how long we could fund the government with these taxes increases. do you know if you took the combined wealth of every person making over a million dollars a year, plus the profits from all of the fortune 400 companies, you still couldn't fund our government for one year. you could get maybe to july or august. the problem is the spending. and spending equals power in washington, d.c. and these people are not going to give up power until they have to. and the point at which they have to is when our economy completely starts to collapse, when you see the stock market just bail out, when you see investors bail out. we're not there yet. they're not scared yet. >> sean: okay. you wrote a book that oddly -- and by your own words, your own admission, because we've been friends a long time -- called "the fair tax." goes on to become a huge number one "new york times" bestseller. your follow-up book, same thing, bag bestseller. interesting, i represent the mac penny plan. you cut one cent, one penny, out of every dollar that washington will spend. you do that every year for six years, keep gdp spending at 18%, 19%, where historically it's been, and you balance the budget. >> sure. >> sean: that seems like something you could sell to the american people. >> you can sell it -- >> sean: go ahead. >> sean, you can sell it to people who are educated and informed about our economy, but we have a government-educated electorate out there that cannot tell you the difference between a profit and a profit margin, a government-educated electorate that buys this nonsense from obama that the rich aren't paying their fair share. these people, the voters we have right now in this country, sean, are exactly the type of voters that the people who created our government education system 100 years ago wanted. low information, uninformed, they don't know what's going on, and they simply react to this rhetoric they get from their politicians in washington, d.c. >> sean: you're saying we've conditioned the american people to be dependent on government. >> sure. >> sean: what is the end result? as you leave the talk industry in 22 shows, what's the state of the country as you look into the boortz crystal ball? >> we are in decline. we are going to continue to decline until we reach a cliff, that we went over it would be a fatal plunge. so i love this country, sean. i had two parents who served in the military. now buried in a national cemetery. my brother was in the navy. this is a wonderful country. but you can't keep whistling past the graveyard. we are in decline. we are in the decline that barack obama wanted, because he thinks this country has been an evil colonial power,al these ye, and we're just going to have to get much more desperate straits before the people say, wait a minute, maybe i haven't been paying enough attention here. >> sean: all right. neal boortz, you're not retiring fully, because we will call upon you often. good to see you. >> absolutely, sean. have a great christmas. >> sean: you too, buddy. coming up, it's one of the most outrageous examples of liberal hypocrisy. you won't see this anywhere else in the media. senate democrats apparently want to silent republican opposition by making changes to the filibuster rule, but just a few years ago they were singing a different tune. we'll show you what the media won't show you. >> this nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. i want a fundamental power grab. and we can save you 10% on ground shipping over the ups store. look this isn't my first christmas. these deals all seem great at the time... but later, not so much. this isn't that kind of deal. [ male announcer ] break from the holiday stress. save on ground shipping at fedex office. you can stay in and like something... or you can get out there and actually like something. the lexus december to remember sales event is on. this is the pursuit of perfection. >> sean: democrats have gone a step too far, senate democrats with hairy reid leading the charge want to drastically change the filibuster egypt in order to oppose the republicans' opposition to certain legislation. look at what they said when president bush and the republicans were power. >> senate democrats represent the last check. republicans want to eliminate this check and give president bush power no president has ever had. the ability to hand out lifetime federal judgeships without consensus from the other party. never happened before. they think the senate should be a rubber stamp for this president -- i guess every president -- even if that president wants radical supreme court nominees and judges who will roll back our rights. >> everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority chooses to end the filibuster, if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate, then the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse. >> changing the rules of the senate has a long life to it. it's a precedent set in the senate that we will have to live with for decades to come. >> this nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. it is a fundamental power grab by the majority party. >> sean: i can't wait to see how liberals will spin those old comments. joining with me reaction tucker carlson, kierstan powers. >> it's shocking to see there's hypocrisy in washington. mortifies me when we discover it. this is the game in washington whenever people find it's to their advantage to change the rules, they try to change them. i know harry reid is making a lot of noise about union unilaty change the rules, but i still think they'll have an agreement on moving forward with the filibuster. >> sean: is barack obama right when he said this was not our founders intended? was joe biden right in saying this was arrogance in power, a fundamental power grab? were they right then? where are their voices now? >> good question. i'll jump in. let me just say, yes, i think he was right. it failed. the republicans' attempts to do this then failed. i hope this fails now. what is interesting now, the amount of bitterness now in the senate, which is a place that gets along pretty well. a lot of bipartisan friendships there. the hatred -- that's not too strong -- focused on harry reid is remarkable, both for his unwillingness to bring a budget forward going on the fourth year, for his unwillingness to consider republican amendments. i was up the other day talking to republican senators, and the anger they feel at harry reid is as i've never seen it in watching the congress. he's truly despised. that's not good news. makes it hard to do anything there with that level of anger. >> sean: look, hillary clinton, it's reid, it's biden and obama. we've got the same players. the most outspoken critics of getting rid of the filibuster. hillary actually said, it's less efficient. that's right. it's deliberately designed to be that way. again, there's a compliant media, doesn't call them out on their hypocrisy. i don't know of anybody else in the media playing what we just played, kirsten. that's disappointing. seems like they're not doing their job in asking fundamental questions -- why are you laughing? >> you don't want to get me started on the media these days. you're not going to get disagreement out of me. of course they should ask questions. of course they should hold both sides equally accountable, but that's not the way things seem to work anymore. i think on this issue, i don't -- first of all, i don't think it's going to turn into what we're talking about. i don't think he'll act unilaterally. tucker is right, he's disliked. in the democrat party, i think people were hoping he would lose and chuck schumer would become the leader. the filibuster, the way it's been used, actually has been kind of a problem. you know, both sides -- >> sean: why is it a problem? >> well, because there's a lot of -- you don't even really filibuster anymore. >> sean: so you want a real filibuster, where mr. smith goes to washington, he stays up all night and he filibusters? >> it should be transparent. it shouldn't be under the cloak of darkness, where the american people don't realize that people are putting a hold on things, obstructing things. >> sean: all they really to do is to threaten a filibuster. >> exactly, that's right. >> yeah. i don't think that's a very efficient way to operate. i'm no -- >> basically what you're looking at is a body that requires a real consensus. you need 60 votes to do anything. it's been that way for my lifetime. it will be that way going forward. again, it's not a majority rules deal. it's not the house of representatives. it wasn't designed to be one. it's comedy, as they say. people get along, think things through, supposed to be more moderate omoderate than the hou. you don't want a firebrand, cable show type body. it's the senate. >> sean: might be better actually. >> but somebody's got to beat you and -- >> sean: some adults in the room. i'm not sure if that's effective as of now. >> you're right. >> sean: maybe if they passed a budget. let's start there. >> good point. >> sean: do your constitutional duty. that would be a good start for the senate, harry reid. >> amen. >> sean: guys, good to see you. coming up, when democrats get desperate, what do they do? they pull out the race card. we'll explain which well-known newspaper, by the way, is calling republicans racist for questioning what ambassador rice knew about the benghazi. we'll get to that and much more on this edition of "hannity." embarrassed about my skin.

>> yes. it has nothing to do with race or gender. it's flat-out politics. i think you and i will agree on that. i think that's what this is about. i think in all fairness to ambassador rice, she was given specific information and that's what she relayed. that's the information she shared with the american people. doesn't make her a liar, incompetent. it means she got information that wasn't correct. >> sean: let me agree with you to a point. i don't blame her as much as the president two weeks later when asked a direct question, he's still referring to a youtube video that had nothing to do with it. our state department was watching this in real time. david petraeus said he knew mudslide instantaneously this was a terror attack. >> where was hillary clinton, petraeus true t to go on televie way susan rice race? i think she was put up, a scapegoat. >> sean: that may be the most fair analysis i've heard. >> i probably won't agree with that. >> sean: why not? >> when you look back at the tenure of condoleezza rice, the whole weapons of mass destruction, they were never there, never found. >> called all kinds of names, those on the left trying play the race card. >> and now people on the right are trying to duty same thing. >> sean: the washington editorial board, did members of the republican party accuse critics of colin powell and condoleezza rice of being racist? no, that didn't happen. >> you'll never hear me defend "the washington post," however i do get -- there are issues related to the parallels between condoleezza rice's tenure and susan rice's related to what kind of goes on when people make mistakes. >> i disagree. the congressional black caucus -- >> it doesn't mean people are liars or incompetent. it means the information they were given is incorrect. >> i question her credibility, because she went along with those talking points. if she's so bright and smart, she should have done research and come to the conclusion that this was the anniversary of september 11th. that's a hint in a hat for anybody. she was used. >> sean: the president and the administration, in the middle of an election, did not want the truth to come out about benghazi. they knew better than what they were saying. that level of dishonesty, you've got to admit two weeks later, you knew it was a terrorist attack, and the president blaming a youtube video. everybody knew, but he wouldn't say it. he wouldn't say it because he wanted to get re-elected. that ought to be troublesome to everybody, democrat or republican. >> he also couldn't have been saying because he wasn't sure. that's what a leader does, a leader makes sure before they put the information out that they have all the correct information. no one is suggesting that -- >> sean: if he wasn't sure -- >> no one is suggesting that the chain was correct related to the information. that doesn't make her a liar. >> sean: if he wasn't sure, then he shouldn't have said it was a youtube video. >> and shouldn't have sent out susan rice to talk about this. it wasn't her area. >> i agree, just like they shouldn't have sent out condoleezza rice. >> her relationship work ethic d and -- why is it a double standard, the race card being played now when -- >> sean: the bottom line it's ugly, if you say chicago, urban, racist. we diminish the impact of real racists by -- it's like the person that calls wolf. >> that's right. >> sean: it's now a general tactic that's dividing the country. >> they do it all the time. they do it effectively. why do you think over 90% of blacks voted for obama with the left playing the race card? >> maybe they cared about his policies and the republican policies didn't work for african americans. how do you make the argument of 39% of white folks voted for obama, too? >> sean: we got to run. it's an ugly but effective campaign tactic. >> it is ugly. it's unfortunate, because it's dividing the country. >> sean: good to see you guys. appreciate it. coming up, can't say we didn't warn you. violence erupts in egypt after president morsi grants himself unmitigated power?

>> the people of egypt have spoken, their voices have been heard, and egypt will never be the same. for egyptians have made it clear that nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day. >> sean: wrong again. that genuine democracy that the president spoke of is now fading fast in egypt, and sources have confirmed to fox news that mobs are preparing to return to the streets of cairo tomorrow for yet another day of demonstrations. joining me now with more on this my guests. michael, here's a guy that refers to the israelis as animals, supports hamas in this latest conflict, the hamas charter calls for the destruction of israel, and you were on this program telling me everything's going to be fine. this is democracy. now the radical islamist has grabbed all the power and obama is giving him credibility. now tell me you support what happened in that here square is a good thing. happened in tahrir square is a good thing. >> i'm hopeful about the egyptian people. they're not going to let this radical muhammad morsi take over power. >> sean: he already has. >> sean: he called himself god, but three things against him, sean. the military is against him. the protesters are against him, the egyptian people. >> sean: are they going to rise against him, assassinate him, get rid of him? >> absolutely. protesters are wounded in a demonstration against this morsi guy, and i think it will continue. people will win in the end. i am very hopeful about that. they fought for this freedom. they're not going to let -- they're just not going to let morsi walk with it. morsi is a very dangerous man right now, sean. you are right about it. >> sean: well, i was right. you told me he would turn out to be moderate, and he didn't turn out so well. >> he did not, he did not. >> sean: bridget, the greater likelihood -- tell me if i'm wrong -- we'll see people mowed down and oppressed, that if they rise up against this radical islamist. what's the more likely outcome? >> exactly what's going to happen, those uprising against him are going to be mowed down. we are witnessing before our own eyes a revolution like the iranian revolution in 1979. let's not forget, it was the majority of the people in egypt that elected morsi, elected the muslim brotherhood, and game 7 the musliand gave themuslim bro. over 70% in somethings want thaa law. we're seeing a dictatorship in the making. >> sean: was this radical islamist given a win, and was hamas given credibility whose charter calls for the destruction of israel, giving billions in aid? >> yes, they did, because what this administration is blind to is the fact that hamas is an offshoot of the muslim brotherhood. hamas looked at morsi with respect because he's a leader in the muslim brotherhood. basically we have the morsi and muslim brotherhood camps together coming, fooling the israelis in the world, with a truce, so hamas can rearm itself and come back with a confrontation. >> sean: i agree with you. i think obama and clinton gave hamas and morsi a win here. here's the question here, michael. why don't we cut off any aid to egypt unless and until they have real democracy? would that be fair? >> i am with you, and it is fair. but remember charles krauthammer on your show a few months ago, he was against it, because it's going hurt the relationship between israel and egypt. from that point he was not in favor of that. you agreed with him on that. we need to stop if they don't behave. >> sean: they're not behalfing. obama is sending hillary clinton -- go ahead. >> we need to stop -- >> they're not listening. they are abusing the funds. >> i agree. agree, bridget, and that's why we have a control, we can stop the funding, and have them come to washington, d.c. and lay out the rules. these are the ground rolls for r you to receive the funding. if you don't do this, we're not going to give you funding, support you either. >> our country needs the money more than egypt. >> sean: great point. very good point. we do need the money more than egypt. where's the worst place to be on black friday? in front of a victoria's secret. black friday shoppers, that was inside a victoria's secret store. we'll ask the question, what's causing all this? and later, is obama mania resurfacing? jamie foxx looks to this god-like worship of the president. we've got the video right here on "hannity." >> sean: black friday once again bringing the best out of the american people. we had riots, fights, injuries, all too common, as shoppers all around the country racing to stores, hoping to land the biggest bargains. here with reaction from the fox business network charles payne and nina easton. guess it's better than the 50 million americans on food stamps, which is a record number. nice to see people shopping. the most dangerous place in the country on friday was at a victoria's secret apparently. >> yeah. although it had some competition around the country, different malls. you know, we've sort of seen these feeding frenzy things before, but we get them more and more every single year. it's crazy, it's bewildering, but what i find interesting, sean, i tell people all the time, you want to know what kind of economy we have, if you want to blame the rich, you know, you're always upset with what this country is all about, people rushing cannot wait -- particularly poor people -- can't wait to give their money away, that they've got to wrestle a security guard, beat each other up to spend their last nickel for a bra or pantyies. >> sean: why in victoria's secret, for crying out loud? people are brawling and rioting. first it's cabbage kids, nina. it's tickle me elmo, which in light of what we now know -- or the allegations that have been made, i guess that that won't happen. you got sneakers, bras. why? i don't get it. >> one thing it's not, sean, is the economy. four years ago, 2008, i don't know if you remember this, but there was -- it was very strong holiday sales, and the economy hadn't quite gone in the tank yet. and people -- 2000 people stormed a wal-mart on long island and actually killed a worker there. on the same day, across the country, in california, a couple of guys decided to show their machismo in a toys-r-us by pulling out guns and shooting each other. this is not new. it's not something you can blame on the economy. what you can say, though, is that if retailers are going to whip up all of this enthusiasm or decadence, that they should give a sense of no tolerance for any kind of this behavior. >> nina, i got to tell you, you're going down a dangerous path here, blaming the retailer. reminds me when nike comes out with a new sneaker and people on food stamps go there and leave their kids in a car, and all of a sudden urban league is blaming nike for being responsibility. accountability is accountability. >> charges i'm not blaming the retailers per se. i'm saying personal responsibility. it's about the people's behavior. but i think retailers for their own protection need to send out more of a zero tolerance policy. can't blame it on a bad economy. >> sean: there's a cultural phenomenon that whatever the it thing is -- i mentioned over the years, cabbage cats, tickle me elmo, sneakers, whatever it is, people have to have it that second. >> right. >> sean: why? >> right. well, it's obviously part of the commercial culture of our country, that it whips people up into this frenzy. and interestingly enough, it's funny to read the foreign press, they love to laugh about this every year, our behavior on black friday. i think it's actually going ebb, though, sean, because more people are buying things online, and actually -- and shopping days are actually being spread across thanksgiving week. >> sean: look at this. people brawling over crap. >> yeah. you now have more people shopping on other days. it's obscene. it's absolutely obscene, this behavior. yeah. >> sean: i'll be honest, last place i'd ever want to go to on a day like this where it's so busy is a mall. >> yeah. i know it. >> how about the fact that stores are now open on thanksgiving, so people leave their thanksgiving dinners to go to these sales? >> sean: you know, i'm sorry, but there's certain days you have to work. there are news days. if there's news on christmas, big news, you'll be working, i'll be working, charles will be home celebrating. >> as usual. >> sean: i'm only kidding. all right, guys, good to see you both. appreciate it. >> thanks, sean. >> sean: coming up, hollywood is looking to reignite the flame that was once obama mania. obama godlike? you won't believe what jamie foxx is now calling the president. he's taken it to a new level of obama worship. maybe he has an alter at his house and lights candles before he goes to bed every night. that's next. (car horn) paying with your smartphone instead of cash... (phone rings) that's a step forward. with chase quickpay, you can send money directly to anyone's checking account. i guess he's a kicker... again, again! oh, no you don't! take a step forward and chase what matters. >> sean: welcome back to "hannity." just when we thought there was a fascination with the anointed one might be dying down, we're reminded of how obsessed left wing celebrities really are with president obama. listen to oscar-winning actor jamie foxx at soul train awards last night. >> first of all,. >>give an honor to god, and our! >> sean: here with reaction to that bizarre comment and much more, comedian paul mercurio, and radio talk show mary walter. you work why jon stewart -- >> he's not african american. >> sean: what does have to do with it? he worships obama. he worships him. >> i just do the warm-up. i'm a little monkey boy. that's all i am. let's get to it. okay, i understand how african americans, jamie foxx, could be very proud -- >> sean: lord and savior? >> let me get to it. they're proud of their heritage, proud obama is in the white house, and good for them. yes, it's over the top. he's not our savior. you don't need obamacare if you have -- if he's the savior, he should be able to cure us. >> sean: that's true. >> sean: he's like jesus, because like jesus obama gave gifts to the poor to curry favor. >> sean: why doesn't he point out the failure? >> i'm not here as a representative. >> sean: you're friends with the guy. >> it's like your staff. i'm not allowed to make eye contact with him. it's the same thing with you. >> sean: that's not true. i'm start pulling them in one by one. >> he fired three people on the commercial break. >> sean: i haven't fired three people in my whole life. >> why do they have rose petals that go from the dressing room to the desk? >> sean: are you done? listen, i understand why some people like obama, they believe in socialism, redistribution. we've become an entitlement society. i get it. the country has moved a little center left, as evidenced, paul love, legalization of marijuana in colorado. gay marriage was rejected by 30-odd states. now it's illegal. the point is the country has moved. >> i agree with you, but part of this whole thing, maybe a conspiracy theorist, i'm seeing something paul won't see, but it's part of this the intellectually superior don't need the crutch of religion, those of us clinging to our guns and religion. we're somehow less evolved. it's about a societal religion as opposed to a church religion, because if the government gives you everything, the government becomes your religion, and he's our leader. >> sean: i don't get this. if you listen to

of this is because president obama would like to see susan rice as his secretary of state? >> well, let's say 50% and -- >> you're putting it at a fair 50. >> 50% and the other 50% susan rice is a proxy for this president. i've said it again and will say it again there has been a witch hunt for every person of color that has served alongside this president. there are really serious things, if that's actually english -- >> only you would know, yes. >> about benghazi that they should be investigating. what is troubling is that four foreign service officers died. what is truly troubling on top of that, is that these senators apparently believe that going on a talk show, even a series of sunday talk shows, makes you responsible for the security of people in the field. they know that's notes the case. they know that susan rice isn't the line manager responsible for security. didn't block the right security for these officials or funding thereof. she's in the part of the cia. she was out doing what they do on sunday talk shows which is talking about a whole range of subjects. i suspect t
